Post sals to redevelop as much as 21.4 hectares of land a
LAS VEGAS -- T.J. McConnell laid out like a baserunner diving headfirst into a base. He missed the ball, but, after landing with a thud, jumped up and raced the other direction. Aaron Gordon, who did get the steal because of McConnells effort, flipped the ball ahead and Arizonas point guard ran under it, scoring an easy basket in transition. The play, and countless others like it in a spirit-crushing rout over Utah, let the rest of the Pac-12 field -- and the country -- know that one of the nations best defensive is in high gear for the post-season. Playing with a feverish intensity from the opening tip, Arizona raced through the record book and overwhelmed the stunned Utes in a 71-39 rout on Thursday to match the most lopsided game in Pac-12 tournament history. "We were locked in," Arizona coach Sean Miller said. "Everything that we wanted to do defensively, we were able to do it." Nick Johnson scored 14 points, McConnell 13 and Gordon added 11 for Arizona, which shot 53 per cent. That was just a side note to what the Wildcats were doing defensively. After playing two close games against Utah during the regular season, top-seeded Arizona (29-3) opened the tournament with a have-to-see-it-to-believe-it defensive performance. Energized by a raucous crowd that made it feel like the McKale Center, the Wildcats were at their lane-jumping, shot-contesting best against the Utes (21-11) to move into Fridays semifinals against Colorado or California. Arizona jumped on Utah early and had stamped its name in the record books by then, setting marks for fewest points allowed, fewest field goals (12) and lowest shooting percentage (25). The Wildcats held the Utes to 13 points in the first half, another record, and matched UCLAs 32-point win over Oregon State in 2006 to move into Fridays semifinals against Colorado or California. Jordan Loveridge and Delon Wright, Utahs leading scorers, combined for seven points on 1-of-4 shooting and Utah lost by 13 fewer points than its 10 previous losses combined. "When we get stops and get rebounds and get the push, our athleticism is really at play," Johnson said. "I think finishing with dunks and around the basket gets everybody going. Arizona had hoped to make a statement in the Pac-12 tournament to earn a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. The Pac-12 regular-season champion Wildcats certainly did in their tournament opener, playing with an intensity Utah had no chance of matching after playing a close game against Washington the night before. The crowd at MGM Grand Garden Arena started chants of "U of A! U of A!" long before the opening tip and the Wildcats turned the game into a rout not long after the ball went up. Racing out for dunks and 3-pointers in transition set up by their climb-in-your-jersey defence, the Wildcats stormed past the Utes with an 18-2 run that put them up 22-6. Arizona kept its foot on the Utes behind its defence, contesting every shot, pass and dribble. The Wildcats held Utah to 5-of-19 shooting while forcing eight turnovers in the first half. Loveridge and Wright, who combine for over 31 points per game, took four shots and had no points between them. "They were really putting on a defensive clinic in the first half," Utah centre Dallin Bachynski said. Second half, more of the same. Utah missed its first 11 shots -- its first field goal came 9:15 in -- and at one point had five players on the court who had yet to score in the game. Yep, it was that bad. The only thing in doubt at that point was whether the Utes would get to 30 points. They got there with 4:17 left, but, boy, was it ugly. "They took pride in guarding us," Utah coach Larry Krystkowiak said. "They took the life out of us." Bennie Fowler Jersey . The Canadian defensive tackle suffered the injury on Monday and had tests done on Tuesday. He was a potential starter on the defensive line but head coach Mike OShea said he wasnt even thinking about the ratio when he got the news. Andy Janovich Jersey . Viewers in the Canadiens region can watch the game on TSN Habs at 7:30pm et/8:30pm at. ... us-Jersey/. He was with the New York Jets in 2011 when the NFL locked out their players after they failed to agree on a new contract. Willy went undrafted but was given a look by four NFL teams before heading north. Billy Turner Jersey . Howard had 17 points and a career-high-tying 26 rebounds in his Houston debut, James Harden added 21 points and the Rockets cruised to a 96-83 win over the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night. Chris Harris Jr Jersey . Hawkins severely sprained his left ankle while making a diving catch during training camp and went on injured reserve with a designation he could return midway through the season. He was back at practice Wednesday.OTTAWA - Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk says he has no reason to feel embarrassed about his teams lack of spending.Ottawas payroll of US$55,804,597 is the lowest in the NHL leaving them plenty of room to spend, but dont expect Melnyk to open his wallet any time soon.Im not the least embarrassed about us spending at the bottom, Melnyk said Monday afternoon at his 11th annual charity skate for kids. Im happy about it because well be able to spend more in the future and some cant. Some are stuck.That being said, Melnyk is in no rush to increase his teams payroll despite his teams current position outside the playoff picture.The Senators are 11th in the Eastern Conference at 12-12-5 and would need to make some significant improvements to move into the top eight.Melnyk said he and general manager Bryan Murray spoke as recently as Monday morning.Were not in any way restricted, said Melnyk. (Murray) has not come back to me and he said theres nothing out there that he could actually spend money on.Thats not to say the Senators arent prepared to increase their payroll. With a number of players facing restricted free agency this summer Melnyk says they wont have any choice but to spend.For now, however, it appears the Senators will wait and see if its recent coaching change has any impact on the teams fortunes.The Senators fired head coach Paul MacLean last week and promoted Dave Cameron, who had been an assistant, to take over the coaching duties.Many assumed Cameron was Melnyks choice seeing as the two share a long history.Lets get this straight once and for all, Melnyk said. (Murray) makes the decisions. I stay out of the hockey operations, because otherwise if I get myself involved in that then I cant come out and point the finger at anybody.Melnyk said he was consulted on the decision to fire MacLean, but left the final decision up to Murray.I just let him do his thing, Mellnyk said.ddddddddddddMelnyk and Cameron have known each other since 2001, when Melnyk purchased the OHLs Toronto St. Michaels Majors while Cameron was the teams head coach.I think hes going to do great otherwise I dont think he would have been selected as being the next coach, Melnyk said. Hes patient, hes a hard worker, not to say Paul wasnt a hard worker — he was. If you add together hard work and I think a great attitude and the respect of the dressing room all together I think hell do well.Melnyk also addressed the possibility of building a new arena closer to Ottawas downtown core.The National Capital Commission launched a request for proposals to redevelop as much as 21.4 hectares of land at LeBreton Flats, a few blocks west of Parliament Hill.One criteria for the redevelopment proposal is the inclusion of an attraction of a regional, national or international significance that is also a world-class capital destination.Its very premature even to talk about this as we havent even decided were going to do this, said Melnyk. Theres a request for qualification and we havent submitted one yet, we have until Jan. 7, but if were going to do it we want to do it right. We want to be organized, we want to make sure that this has been very carefully thought through.Melnyk says should the organization decide to submit a proposal it would likely happen before Christmas.We want to do whats right for the city, for the fans, for the organization long term, said Melnyk. Thats the way I think, long term. Its not what happens this year, the year after, its what happens over the next 20 years from now.Melnyk also commented on the outbreak of mumps across the league.Its bizarre, he said. It could be serious if it gets through a dressing room and you could get five, six guys sitting on the sidelines so I think every team should be taking it seriously and we certainly do.
